My Little Project ☆ Neon Frames From Informa

October 12, 2012

I would usually use this type of post for my Wednesday interior design column “Wednesday Wall2Wall”. Since I am taking an e-course Blogging Your Way and have homework to post on my blog, please allow me to post this today, Friday, the day when I usually post my “Friday Finds”. I have a few backlogs for my finds. Hopefully I will be able to post them in the near future.

Below is the before and after photos.

I was at Informa, the Indonesian furniture store, the other day and saw very affordable (prices range from IDR 18,000/US$1.8 to IDR 32,000/US$3.2 for 6×4 & 5×7 size frames) and cute neon color photo frames. For Jakarta, the city that does not have IKEA (as of October 2012), the products that Informa sells are about equivalent to IKEA in terms of prices and designs. As an avid IKEA fan though, I must say that there is no place like IKEA for furniture and decorative item shopping.

Anyways, these neon frames caught my eyes and I decided to use them to spruce up my kids playroom. Just by observing on Pinterest, Neon colors seem to be “the colors” to have this year. I figured that having frames with my family photos is an easy and inexpensive way to decorate a space.

Instead of having frames in the same colors and sizes, I thought that mixing the colors and sizes creates more fun and eclectic mood.

I have two big walls that are empty (the photos above and below) and thought I should decorate one of the walls with neon frames, but I feel reserved to make a bunch of holes on the wall to hang the frames. Therefore, my alternative was to put the frames on the shelves.

The frames feel light enough to use the removable hooks, so maybe I can use them to hang them on the walls.

What would you do?
